Harris, Emmylou - Heaven Only Knows Lyrics




Every night it's the same
I feel your heart turn cold as rain
And know that you'll be gone again
I hear the front door close
You say you got to go downtown
I guess there's someone else you've found
So why you're still coming round
Heaven only knows

Heaven only knows just why loving you should make me cry
Make me feel like I could die
That's the way it goes
Heaven only ever sees
How love's made a fool of me
I guess that's how it's meant to be but
Heaven only knows

I've heard it said that talk is cheap
But still your words they cut so deep
Lay me crying in my sleep
And the pain just grows
I don't know who's right or wrong
But all we had is dead and gone
So why you keep me hanging on
Heaven only knows

Heaven only knows just why loving you should make me cry
Make me feel like I could die
That's the way it goes
Heaven only ever sees
How love's made a fool of me
I guess that's how it's meant to be but
Heaven only knows

I'm going to turn and walk away
There's nothing left for me to say
It wouldn't change things anyway
Though, I suppose
The love I gave was always true
Well, I don't know what else to do
And how I'll ever get over you
Heaven only knows

Heaven only knows just why loving you should make me cry
Make me feel like I could die
That's the way it goes
Heaven only ever sees
How love's made a fool of me
I guess that's how it's meant to be but
Heaven only knows

  73. The Bad Guy From The Darkside

    THE SOPRANOS SEASON 5 EPISODE 1 What a opener after a 3 year wait!S05 E01. "Like" if you know what I'm talking about.Two Tonys. Both of them wanted Dr. Melfi. Such a great use of a song.Tony Soprano Hi there, Tony! :)Yes indeed - It's the opener following the final episode of season 4, titled Whitecaps.  That closing episode was spot-on for its marital realism - the devastating and logical culmination of Carmela and Tony's tenuous bond.  Opening season 5 with Heaven Only Knows was, of course, genius, as was most of The Sopranos creative efforts.All these kids who never appreciated country music....saw Sopranos and realized they love it.R.I.P Jim Gandolfini best mafia boss ever <3I wanna sit in my garden with an AK and a Cigar in my hands...Tony Soprano sitting by his pool guarding his house with an AK-47 and Cuban cigar comes to mind.The Sopranos brought me here, ... let me get the escupette'One of the best songs used for The Sopranos.

    Just for conversation sake.. the bear is Tony.
